The Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) presented on Wednesday afternoon to Dani Alves as a new player for the next two seasons and, when asked about the possible departure of Marco Verratti to Barcelona, he said: “I came to play with Verratti. What do I do if I leave? I hope you help us to achieve our goals. I would not have come if he did not follow. ”
‘The president had a great power of persuasion. I like to make history. We can write it together here.
‘The work that the club has been doing over the past several years is very encouraging. It’s an ambitious team.’
Alves was joined in the French capital by his new wife Joana Sanz, who watched on as her husband was unveiled at his new club following their secret wedding at the weekend.
Dani Alves has no regrets about snubbing Manchester City in favour of a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
City thought they had a two-year deal wrapped up for Alves, 34, to rejoin his old Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, but were stunned to see the free agent go to PSG who have offered him £230,000-a-week.
The Brazil right back insists he has gone to France because he has a better chance of claiming a fourth Champions League winner’s medal.
After the photographs of the Brazilian side were made public, the press conference began. “I love to win, to make history, I want to constantly open to new horizons. It’s the third year my name was related to the PSGand it was the good one, “said Alves , who acknowledged about City that” I talked to Txiki Begiristain about my signing. ” The former Barcelona star said.
Regarding his goals in PSG, Alves said that “I had the pleasure of winning 3 Champions and now I hope to bring PSG my experience, I have come to win and thank Maxwell to persuade me to come to Paris .”
